I have a vague idea involving a small group of friends (all PN dolls) who go on various adventures. I knew that Lycee would be one of them, Maya would also be one and a blonde version of Mia would be yet another. I have Lycee (Progression), Maya (Sweets ala Mode) and now Mia (Spring Rabbit), so my little crew is complete for now... unless I can add Yuzuha at some point!
I've had Mia here for several days but I haven't been able to photograph her until now. In fact, the poor girl has been hiding away in her box to protect her from the clutches of a zealous, doll-loving 21 month old!
I have to admit, this girl is a real cutie!
As you can see, I decided to dress her down a bit since it's already quite warm here. She probably wouldn't need her beret and sweater in 77º F weather. Besides, you can really appreciate the detailing of her dress this way.
Yet another try at the "doll holding flowers" shot that nearly always goes awry for me. This time, it turned out OK although you can tell the bouquet is already starting to fall apart. I pick the flowers at the last moment before the shot so they don't have time to wilt (much) before the photo is taken.
Finally, a bit of lagniappe.... The bouquet is really beginning to wilt and fall apart at this point so this shot is the best of a bad lot. With each successive shot from this pose, there were fewer flowers and they looked sadder. Doesn't take long for that to happen.
Over all, I'm really happy with this girl. Aside from the marathon computer babysitting session needed to pre-order her, I was please with my purchase. With a full set of spare hands and extra clothes and accessories, I think she was a reasonable value. Hopefully, I can take more shots of her in the near future but we shall see about that!
